The plans for the 2020 Republican National Convention are set: President Donald Trump has officially chosen a location for his speech, and he’s even unveiled a theme for the Convention.
For several weeks, Trump had teased the possibility of delivering his speech at either Gettysburg or the White House. And just yesterday, the President confirmed the speech would be on the White House lawn.
Then Republicans unveiled a decidedly patriotic theme for their event.
A source told Fox News that it’d be “in stark contrast to the doom and gloom message we expect to hear from career politicians at the DNC convention.”
The Democratic National Convention kicks off next week and many expect to hear speeches concerning America’s biggest problems.
However, the GOP is taking another route, and it’s specifically designed to cater to their voter base:
The theme of the upcoming 2020 GOP convention will be ‘Honoring the Great American Story’ and will highlight America’s “greatness, opportunity and President Donald Trump’s bold leadership.
The GOP has also given names to each day of the Convention:
On the first day (Monday, August 24), they will focus on “The Land of Promise.” On Tuesday, it will be “The Land of Opportunity.” Wednesday will be about “The Land of Heroes,” and they’ll talk about “The Land of Greatness” on Friday.
Democrats have already revealed their speaker slate, and the GOP is starting to announce theirs as well.
Speakers include Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), as well as several civilians, including Tanya Weinreis, owner of Mountain Mudd Espresso in Montana.
Weinreis recieved a PPP loan and she plans to talk about how critical it was to keep her business alive.
Then there’s Ann Dorn, a Sergeant in the St. Louis Metro Police Department, whose husband was killed protecting a pawn shop during a night of violent rioting.
Expect to see more confirmed speakers next week. As for Trump, he’s defying those who call his speech selection of the White House lawn “irresponsible.”
But the President and the GOP seem to know their followers quite well — a patriotic approach should curry plenty of favor among Trump’s constituents.
- The President has selected a location for his RNC speech, the White House, and a patriotic theme for the Convention.
- The theme is “Honoring the Great American Story.” And each day of the convention will have a unique title as well, such as “The Land of Promise.”
- Speakers will include pro-Trump civilians as well as politicians.
